Giving Day 2022 was a success!
The Wayne State University community came together in school spirit and generosity on April 7 for Giving Day 2022. Wayne State is grateful for the overwhelming support, which surpassed Giving Day 2021. This year, over 1,500 donors raised more than $950,000 to support students, faculty, research, diversity and inclusion – and more than 100 causes across campus.
UP FOR THE CHALLENGES
Throughout the day, the Wayne State community participated in social media challenges, such as posting an image of you, your pet, or your favorite Warrior wearing Green and Gold to win $500 in support of any area at Wayne State.
Match and challenge dollars for individual causes across schools, colleges and units totaled $638,121. Wayne State donors showed why every gift matters. Gifts under $100 accounted for 42% of total gifts received, proving that when we come together, we are Warrior Strong.
INVITING ALL TO GIVE GREEN AND BE GOLD
Several ambassadors and many volunteers helped boost participation and social media sharing, inviting alumni, staff, faculty, students, friends, and partners to #GiveGreenBeGold. Personal testimonies, photos, and videos across social media channels showcased worthy causes and a lot of love and pride for Wayne State.
Wayne State is grateful to all who joined us for Giving Day 2022 and for the stories you shared about why you gave. You showed the world once again that when we Give Green, Wayne State’s future will Be Gold. Thank you.
Giving Day 2023 will be held on April 13. In the meantime, it’s never too late to make your 2022 gift. If you have questions, contact the Office of Annual Giving at firstname.lastname@example.org.
